What it does is the water passes over keel one #1 and as it does it flows to the oposite side of keel two #2 starboard to port port to starboard ect. The outcome is the boat is forced by water pressure to stay more upright and not have the healing moment it would have with a single keel. Jeff H a member here is a marine designer and could help with this subject a little more.
